Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide
Siemens Energy will deliver four H-class combined cycle power units for power plants in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) in southern China.
The separate deals with Guangdong Energy Group Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Energy Group Co., Ltd. involve new and updated power plants and will help meet the growing power demand in the region. The projects also mark the sale of the 100th SGT-8000H gas turbine.
Under the agreement with Guangdong Energy, Siemens Energy will deliver a 675 MW combined cycle power generation unit, including a SGT5-8000H gas turbine, a steam turbine, two generators and related auxiliary equipment, and long-term maintenance service for the plant in Guangzhou owned by Guangdong Yuehua Power Co., Ltd. The existing coal-fired power plant will be transformed into a higher-efficiency gas-fired plant, and this will reduce carbon dioxide emission by more than 60%. The plant will generate 2.3 billion kilowatt-hours of power annually and is expected to go into commercial operation in mid-2023.
